John Travolta, who became meme fodder in 2014 when he mistakenly called singer Idina Menzel "Adele Dazeem" at the Academy Awards, is again going viral for an apparent award show gaffe.
According to People magazine, Travolta's latest flub came when he and Queen Latifah presented the video of the year award to Taylor Swift. As Swift and several LGBTQ stars featured in her "You Need to Calm Down" video took the stage, Travolta appeared to try to give the award to drag queen Jade Jolie, who was dressed as Swift.
Travolta quickly became a trending topic on Twitter as video of the awkward exchange circulated online, People reported.

After the win, Swift and Jolie recorded a short cellphone video backstage.
"Aaaahhh the most magical night EVER!" Jolie tweeted. "So proud of my queen @taylorswift13 for snatching Videos for Good & Video Of The Year at the @vmas tonight."
